    1. Product Description

      The erotic romance everyone's talking about. Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, this novel will possess you, and stay with you forever.

      As literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for the student newspaper, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the store where she works part-time.

      Ana, innocent and unworldly, is shocked to find herself desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana's quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too - but on his own terms.

      Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success - his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family - Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey's secrets and explores her own dark desires.

      The first instalment in the Fifty Shades trilogy by E L James, 50 Shades of Grey is erotic, romantic and totally addictive. The Fifty Shades Trilogy (Part II: Fifty Shades Darker and Part III: Fifty Shades Freed) is a tale of BDSM romance that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

      514 pages.

    1. Opened my eyes

      Reviewed: 19 August 2014 by pinkanimal, a Straight Married Female

      Lots of my friends were reading these and I decided to take the plunge and read them. A big step for me as I had never read anything like this before and at the time our sex life was a bit bland and, well, non-exisitent.

      I fell deep into this book, head over heels for Christian and jealous of Ana's relationship with him.

      I found myself actually visualising the book come to life in my head, and it turned me on thinking about it.

      I'm a fast reader when I want to be and it didn't take me long to devour this book time and time again.

      Whenever I feel like it I dig out the books again just for fun, and I can't wait for the movie to come out in 2015.

      Now thanks to this book I actually have a rather exciting sex life. I'm a regular in the Lovehoney community and even get tied up and spanked! I wasn't interested in anything like that before!

      Reading 50 shades of Grey opened my eyes to a world I never knew existed.

    1. Definitely a must read

      Reviewed: 01 August 2014 by littlell, a Straight Going Steady Female

      This is the first erotic book that I read. I am not a book reader usually; however, with this book I had to continue and read the whole trilogy.

      The book, I thought, would be all about sex, but the storyline threw me into an unexpected need to feel for the characters and keep reading.

      This trilogy I keep re-reading now and it is never getting boring.

      The truth be told, it had helped in my own sex life and improved the bedroom antics altogether, which we are both grateful for.

      I cannot recommend this book enough for people who are new to the erotic book scene and want a book that can be read both in public and in the bedroom.

      The book was not long enough, also Ana as a character dragged a bit.

      Amazing, a must read and helped in the bedroom.

    1. Good in so many ways

      Reviewed: 29 June 2014 by Miss Stripes

      The 'Fifty Shades' trilogy were not my first dip into erotic novels. However they were the first lot of erotic stories that were deemed 'acceptable' to read in public.

      I am an avid book reader and enjoy my stories to have well-written characters. Whilst there are noticeable flaws in Ana's personality, I found all characters likeable and was soon left swooning over Christian Grey.

      Fifty Shades is an erotic story which is captivating and addictive, it draws you in and makes you need to read the rest of the series.

      Because of how well Fifty Shades went down. it seemed to become socially acceptable to read it in public places and was less of a taboo.

      This book would be a great introduction to somebody new to erotic novels, or for somebody looking to spice up their lives.

      The plot, Christian Grey, the saucy ideas, getting to read it in public places.
      Cons
      Some parts of Ana's character got a bit frustrating, she did enjoy whining.
      Bottom line
      A brilliant addictive novel, sure to leave you hot under the collar.
